It's been 9 years since I have been on here. Wonder who all is still on here that I used to talk to or if anyone even remembers Legallyblonde.

Yeah i can see there isn't much activity anymore. I remeber when this board was hoppin. I spent most of my time in the wrestling forum though doung the fantasy wrestling. They probably don't even have that anymore.

I don't even keep up with wrestling anymore hamsterboy. But it did sadden me when I heard about Roddy Piper and I had no idea until read on the forum that Dusty Rhodes had passed away in June.

I vaguely remember the name, mostly because we stopped posting around the same time.

I came onto this board too late....I missed the "busy" days....the board is fairly quiet most days...just a few regulars still keeping it active....I don't think I had any interaction w/Amy.......My deepest condolences & sympathy for you & your whole family.....there are few if any words to comfort the loss of a Loved One....I know it's cliché but we really have to find comfort in the darkness sometimes, we have to light that one match that may burn for a bit to bring us light & some quick comfort or just flicker out to leave us wanting, be we cannot extinguish all hope....We should celebrate the wonderful conversations & observations she had on the boards & the friends she made here & abroad....We are never long for this world but the memories & conversations & the Love we share w/complete strangers who share our passions speaks volumes on the Human Being she is....I consider our generation lucky for having grown up in one of the most interesting times of Pop Culture.....the Stories, Movies, Toys....all of it has inspired an generation to create & bring about new ideas & Technology to lead the next ones to a hopeful brighter tomorrow.....that all started w/"kids" like ourselves falling in Love w/Fantasy, Sci-Fi & whatever else.....We grew up in a time of wonder about Galaxies Far Far Away & extraordinary Heroes who set examples for all the kids who emulated them......My heart goes out to Amy's family & her friends.....the Holidays should be a time of Joy & Happiness but few can find that after losing so much....I will Pray for Amy & her family cause that's all I can do really & continue to share the "Love" for Little Plastic Robots & Figures....I think maybe next year I will donate a Toy in her honor at Toys for Tots or some other non-profit agency.....I'm sure she loved to share her Toys & stuff as much as she loved talking about her passions......even though I didn't know her, it does hurt my heart to know one of my fellow "collectors" has Walked On......Rest in Peace legallyblonde....May the Horns of Freedom Ring & the Colors of Ogord flash over you......

As some of you may be aware, I've been battling depression the last few years, and sometimes I can get pretty low, even when there's no good reason for it, especially this time of year. I live with this sense of dread and generally uneasiness every day, and I don't really know why. I'm in a good place professionally, a great place personally with my family...things couldn't be better really. I'm doing pretty well health-wise, although I've recently been diagnosed as having Type 2 Diabetes...it's forced me to get back on my heart-healthy diet, and my weight is actually coming down, but my cardiologist has put me on a two-year consultation, which is great for a heart patient, so there's no good reason for the way I feel. I don't know if I'd call it clinical depression, but I am taking medication for it, so I guess it is...

 

To get closer to my point, this time of year is especially hard for me, as it is for alot of people dealing with depression issues...and to top it all off, yesterday was my dad's birthday; he's been gone now for almost thirteen years, and my grief never eases or goes away completely, it has just become a part of my reality. And I won't go into all of the other things bouncing around in my head, and I don't mean to add to anyone's grief or sadness, I just wanted to let you guys know that whenever I come on here, you all remind me that it's okay to let myself enjoy the things I always enjoyed, and to maintain something fun to look forward to in life. It's a small notion in the grand scheme of things, and there are many more things I can be thankful for, but my sense of nostalgia and my love of all things toy and pop-culture related are a big bright spot in what can be a dark place for me sometimes...

 

I didn't mean to click on this particular thread, per-se...I saw the title and GD's name next to the response, and it caught my attention. I hated what happened to legallyblonde, and I continue to pray for her family and friends, but she was (and still is) also an example of taking time to enjoy the fun, simple, and frivolous things in life, to remind ourselves that there are some things we can take time out of our day to stop and enjoy periodically, that there are still some little things left in our lives to have fun with. It's escapism, and I think it's very healthy. I'm thankful for this site and all my friends that are still around...when I'm upset or down, I know I can get on here and be my twelve-year-old, toy-loving self for a time, and that tends to make things better for awhile.
